Wow, I posted a couple days ago the same thing was happening to my FB page News and Headlines.
November 7 at 9:03 AM I wondered what was going on. Every time I see a spike in traffic on my FB page News and Headlines I get a notice.
Best I can tell because FB doesn’t give details and tells me to views “Community Standers”, except on a couple of detail warnings is because some post I share don’t tow “The Party Line” or “PC’ view on Climate Change.
A year or two ago some post had up to 10,000- 16,000 views, then FB said they made some kind of mistake and views went down to just 10 to 20 after FB fixed the “mistake”. Now since Tuesday I haven’t got any views or engagements.
But FB says they don’t censor content. Hmmm, go figure.
Now today They haven’t unpublished my page yet but did change the type of warning I got after I posted about it.
I still haven’t had one visitor to my FB since Tuesday.
The following is the notice I got from WordPress. I haven’t heard anything from Facebook yet though.
“Your website’s connection to Facebook is changing soon“
“We wanted to update you about an upcoming change Facebook is introducing to their platform, and which affects how you may share posts from your website to your Facebook account.
Starting August 1, 2018, third-party tools can no longer share posts automatically to Facebook Profiles. This includes Publicize, the WordPress.com tool that connects your site to major social media platforms (like Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook).
Will this affect your ability to share content on Facebook? It depends. If you’ve connected a Facebook Profile to your site, then yes: Publicize will no longer be able to share your posts to Facebook. On the other hand, nothing will change if you keep a Facebook Page connected to your site — all your content should still appear directly on Facebook via Publicize. (Not sure what the difference is between a Page and a Profile? Here’s Facebook’s explanation.) You can review and change your social sharing settings by heading to My Site(s) → Sharing on WordPress.com.
If you’ve previously connected a Facebook Profile to your WordPress.com site and still want your Facebook followers to see your posts, you have two options. First, you could go the manual route: once you publish a new post, copy its URL and share the link in a new Facebook post. The other option is to convert your Facebook Profile to a Page. This might not be the right solution for everyone, but it’s something to consider if your website focuses on your business, organization, or brand.
While Facebook says it is introducing this change to improve their platform and prevent the misuse of personal profiles, we believe that eliminating cross-posting from WordPress is another step back in Facebook’s support of the open web, especially since it affects people’s ability to interact with their network (unless they’re willing to pay for visibility) We know that this might cause a disruption in the way you and your Facebook followers interact, and if you’d like to share your concerns with Facebook, we urge you to head to their Help Community to speak out.” End of Notice.
I know a lot of people have left Facebook and I don’t use it as much as I did before,(Mostly just for my site) and try to keep my friends count at or under a 100
I have mixed feelings. I have both, a personal Profile and Page for my site (News and Headlines.) I do have my site connected to my Facebook person Profile, I guess I’ll just post it manually, bit of a pain.
My site isn’t really a Conservative site but I was thinking the left has control of the Media and we all know the big three Social Media giants censor Conservatives. Do you think Conservative websites will be effected by this change?
Do you think the other giants ,Google and Twitter will follow Facebook?
I contacted WordPress a few weeks ago to ask if the where going to update the share buttons for the new Social Media outlets like MeWe, Minds, Codias, Gab. The only reply back I got was, “Good question, I’ll look into it” but haven’t heard anything else.
Let’s start of with a couple post I’ve read and shared in the last couple of days.
With social-media giants becoming increasingly hostile to anyone who disagrees with statist and globalist ideology, a growing chorus of voices is sounding the alarm. Christians, conservatives, libertarians, patriots, and more have all been purged from key platforms. On Capitol Hill and across America, outrage over the politically motivated “censorship” is escalating. Now, with lawsuits flying and calls for regulation getting louder, a number of legal issues confront the Internet behemoths — Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Google, and more — that could see dramatic changes in the years ahead. Social Media Purges of Conservatives and Christians Spark Outcry
In recent weeks, we have witnessed an unprecedented social media crackdown on conservative voices. YouTube’s war with Alex Jones has gotten the most attention, but literally hundreds of conservative content creators have had their accounts penalized, suspended or deleted by YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media giants. There appears to be a coordinated effort to target conservative viewpoints, because similar voices on the left are not receiving equal treatment. If I win my race for Congress on May 15th, I am going to make fighting this sort of censorship one of my top priorities once I get to Washington.This Is The Worst Purge Of Conservative Voices In The History Of The Internet
I haven’t tried this one yet but I will. OneWay (The free speech and human friendly alternative to Google, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Reddit, Imgur and Patreon) below is where I heard about it.
In the world of social media, Facebook and Twitter are the twin Goliaths. They dominate the social media market. They also systematically censor posts and use manipulative tactics to influence the ways users think, interact with each other, and even vote in elections. But now, thanks to a love of free speech and the power of alt-tech, a new David has arrived on the scene to compete with those twin Goliaths. The new social media platform — ONEWAY — is prepared to become the platform for those who love free speech. David vs. Goliath: New Social Media Site ONEWAY Takes On the Giants
I’ve been on Codias (THE SOCIAL NETWORK FOR CONSERVATIVES Find, connect, and communicate with conservatives nationwide – it’s free!) for a while now and am enjoy it. They keep improving as it grows.
I’ve just joined Minds , been on it about a week and it too is good. This is my profile roboe1 if your interested if you join. I just started a group there just now so there wont be anyone there but feel free to join. Conservative Refugees.
Before I joined Minds I read this and found it helpful, My first two days on Minds were very exciting, but a little confusing, and I missed a lot in the process. However, being a writer, the more items I’ve posted, the more the site makes sense, and now I am very familiar with the important aspects, and would like to share them with Newbies. The 8 basics are listed in order of priority, so that you know what you need to do first to get things going smoothly 8 Basic Essentials to Get Newbies started on Minds.com
This one too, Welcome, my new friend. I’m very glad you are here to take advantage of the many opportunities offered on this site. Here you are with your brand-new account on minds.com. What do you do now? I’m a user like yourself and have compiled something I hope will be easy, simple, logical, and helpful to you on this new adventure. This site has a lot to recommend it, so let’s get started. MINDS 101 FOR NEWBIES
Below is a good read I just came across today on Minds.
I have a solution. We must decentralize communication and create accounts across multiple platforms. It is far too easy to censor one single outlet and delete your individual profile. Having several will enable us all to build a larger web of communication as well as back up information that may be deleted.
Assembling multiple diverse media networks which offer a variety of content from independent creators will provide robust alternatives to mainstream media. It cannot be stressed enough — it is absolutely paramount for every person to categorically reject corporately-funded propaganda, as it is intended to advance agendas of special interest groups at the expense of the well-being of working class Americans. Do not trust or share media content that is created or funded by any organization with conflicts of interest. Instead, support the plethora of independent underground news outlets available.Battling Online Censorship
I’ve been using DuckDuckgo (Your data shouldn’t be for sale.At DuckDuckGo, we agree. 1Block advertising trackers. 2Keep your search history private. 3Take control of your personal data.) for my search engine for about a year now and prefer it over Google.
I use Opera (Fast, secure, easy-to-use browser Try the Opera browser – now with a built-in ad blocker, battery saver and free VPN.) for my browser and really enjoy the options it offers.
The following is a long post but very informative and admittedly, some of it I don’t get but it does have good information.
Governments have transformed the internet into a surveillance platform, but they are not omnipotent. They’re limited by material resources as much as the rest of us. We might not all be able to prevent the NSA and GCHQ from spying on us, but we can at least create more obstacles and make surveilling us more expensive. The more infrastructure you run, the safer the communication will be.
Well thats it. If you have any more options, suggestion fell free to leave a comment.
Just checked the mail. About a year or two before it came out about the I.R.S. targeting conservatives I got hammered first by the State of California and then the next year the I.R.S. I’ve posted or blogged the whole story before, still paying the I.R.S. They went back 8 years of returns which is the legal limit I believe. Just got another one from the great state of California./s I guess they forgot something in 2011, now their at it again. Made appointment with my tax guy. Can’t a conservative get a brake from these liberal low life’s? I used to use H&R Block and Turbo Tax for the years in question, when I tried to get help from them,both said not their fault or a software mistake, not responsible for that. Now I got a tax guy.This shit is getting OLD!!
I was also hit by the Riverside County Department of Environmental Health earlier this year for some handrails on our Mobil Home. If you look at their site they have nothing to do with handrails and others in the park have the same as I did and they still do. I was the only one hit. Cost a pretty penny to get it done be for they started fining me which I didn’t have but God supplied,(Thank you lord!). Of course I contacted them and the lady that sent the violation letter, can’t remember her name right now. No luck of course, she told me others got letters too. I checked with them and they said they didn’t. When I contacted the main office to find out why this agency was going after handrails when clearly it wasn’t part of their mission they told me I would have to contact the one that sent the violation which turns out the more I looked, looks to be a one woman operation. I get hit every once in a while by odd things since the tax thing, which aren’t that odd at all if you know what I mean, living in California. Hey California, why don’t you kick some of the money you freely give to the illegals and I would be more then happy to get out of this liberal state!
I’ve wanted out of this habitat for liberalism for years now but the high coast of living on a small retirement budget makes it very hard if not impossible. One day though, one day, I’m working on it.
Clarifying some info. I.R.S. can go back 4 years of income tax returns and the State can go back 3 years.
So how did this start? In 2012 I got a notice from the State about 2008 tax return. I had been using H&R block software for years prior to this. I went to H&R and they informed me it was a software error and they are not responsible for software error’s,( a number or dollar amount was put in the wrong line). The lady was very nice and helpful but couldn’t do anything for me, so I pad the bill.
In 2009 I had to retire do to medical problems. After heaving problems with the H&R software for my retirement, ( it got complicated and wasn’t clear on how to file the new status). I started using Turbo Tax, it seamed a little bit more clear to me. Then in 2013 the I.R.S. hit me for 2011. Stopped using software and started using a tax guy at this point. So the State should have got me at that point too. Instead they waited till the statute of limitations 3 year period so that interest and fee’s would build to notify me. Just got to love it./s
Actually I voted last Wednesday by mail. Like a lot of others I feel these next couple election will go down in history as how America finished herself off or how she corrected course and became a force for good and a “beacon on the hill” again in the world.
We must return to our basic foundation, principles and honor GOD again for anything to really change and get us back on course. We are now seeing in plain view the progressive, liberal, democrats agenda for America. Hows the last 6 years been for you? Though the progressives have been at it for quiet some time it is now in plain site and no one can honestly say I did know.
One of the first things they started with was the removal of GOD in our schools, courts and in public. With no more morality for a standard, no consequences for doing wrong, no feeling of accountability we have what we see today. Kids killing themselves and others and why not. They are taught they are here by chance and come from monkeys.
There is no problem lying to people. Slinging mud at someone’s opponent instead of standing for something or to distract from their own problem or record. Look around whether in politics or in public the first thing most do now day’s is attack, accuse and lie and slander. They don’t stand for anything.
Take for example Jeff Stone who is all over Bonnie Garcia. He’s merciless. So before I through out all my political junk mail I just had to take a look. It’s amazing when you look who’s paying for it all and the supposed republican party suggestion are all paid commercials in print. BTW, I’m a registered republican because that’s the only way I can get more choices to vote for. If I could and have the same options I would register as just conservative, we are all painfully aware of the problems with the republican party.
Any ways. When you go to look at Jeff Stone you don’t find much, except for the mud he slings. I use Project Smart vote to look at candidates along with, Smart voter for my county and Judgepedia to look at Judges who are just as important to look into as candidates are. Have you notice what some of these Judges have been doing lately? It takes me a couple of hours but I don’t follow the trash some of these people put out. I just want the facts, no hype or spin. i also used Voters Edge for research. Some candidates you can see who’s funding them and which states are also contributing to them. Very interesting!
It sure would be nice to get rid of all this down in the dirt, mud slinging, cuter politics we’v all let happen and gotten used to. I can remember when it was respectable and just talked about record’s and facts. You actually had to back what you said at one time.
